Here Comes Fall 2023 Mixed Case Special
$260 Value for just $185

Summer is almost over and fall is right around the corner!  This latest box is a mix of reds and whites that aren't too heavy to enjoy on the remaining 90+ degree days we're sure to have but a little bit fuller bodied and great matched for harvest time cuisines.

Sampler includes 1 bottle each:

Vicinus Vinho Verde 1L (Portugal) – At 11.5% this Vinho Verde is a little bolder and more complex than most but still retains all the other stuff (fresh citrus, zippy minerality and a bit of fizz) that you love about Vinho Verde.  Delicious, estate-bottle Vinho Verde in a liter, giving you an extra 1/3 bottle of wine! From the fine folks at Quinta da Raza, this lightly spritzy little number is dry and fresh, with notes of lime, green apple, citrus zest, and green tea. 
Lafage Miraflors Blanc (France) – Speaking of delicious wines with just a hint of effervescence, the latest vintage of Miraflors Blanc is here!  This kitchen sink white blend from southern France was a massive hit at one of our holiday tastings in December and we're excited to have the just as tasty new vintage now in stock.  A blend of Vermentino, Muscat, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Colombard, and Macabeu, Eliane lafage makes this one in a unique fashion, with each of the grapes is harvested separately, when they have reached optimal ripeness.  The combination of aromatic and zesty grapes is the key to success here. A range of heavenly aromas and flavors are all present -- white peach, fresh pear, honeysuckle, green herbs, rose petal, and citrus zest all show up in this immensely likable white. This heady range of aromas and flavors may lead you to think that this a heavy white, but this one stays light, crisp, and mouthwatering on the palate.
Reguta Pinot Grigio (Italy) – The importer of this delicious Pinot Grigio from Friuli, Italy says that the beautiful but tall, skinny bottle has kept is selling as well as he had expected so we're getting it for a couple bucks off and passing the deal along.  Reguta boasts 250 hectares of vineyards in Pocenia, halfway between Latisana and Palmanova and 5 kilometers from the Adriatic sea. The proximity to the sea allows currents of hot air, which blows between the rows, taking away excess humidity insuring pristine, mildew free fruit, a problem for many producers further inland.  The nose has floral aromas of acacia, gerbera and broom, followed by notes of yellow apple, yellow peach and mango.  The palate takes cues from the nose and throws in aromatic herbs together with brackish minerality.
Stoller Rose of Pinot Noir (Oregon) – On of my favorite stops on a recent trip to Oregon's Willamette Valley was Stoller, so I really excited to be able to offer their incredible Rose of Pinot Noir at such a great price.  The aromatics of this Pinot Noir Rosé consistently leap with grapefruit zest and orange peel. A bracing acidity is flirtatious with juicy strawberry and lime. That electric vibrancy buzzes as the wine fades into white tea and delicate florals.
  Cave la Comtadine Cotes du Rhone (France)Comtadine is a cooperative cellar, founded in February 1930 by 12 families from the village of Puyméras.  The cellar took the name ‘Comtadine’ to claim its allegiance to the region of Comtat Venaissin. Situated between the rivers Aygues and Ouvèze, the valley benefits from a very sunny microclimate; it is sheltered from the strong winds of the area (the ‘Mistral’) whilst Mont Ventoux’s influence, 1912m high, brings cool nights.  The wine is an 80/20 blend of Grenache and Syrah that wine shows a ruby red color and the aroma is dominated by fruits such as plum, blackberry, and cherry. There is a rounded mouthfeel with just the right amount of fruit finished by a slight spicy finish.

Buil & Gine 17 XI Montsant (Spain) - Buil & Giné Montsant 17-XI  is a blend of Garnacha, Carinena and Tempranillo, grown in the predominantly granitic  soil so typical this mountainous appellation.  The components of Buil & Gine’s savory and delicious Montsant are assembled and the wine is aged in American oak barrels for approximately six months.  The resulting wine is bright and spicy with a silky texture and vibrant finish.  The barrel age gives it a polished veneer that balances beautifully with the concentration of red fruits and exotic spices.  It’s not a big wine, but it is one that will play nicely with a host of Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, from grilled meats to roast vegetables and rustic cheeses.

San Lorenzo "Sirio" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (Italy) - If you've ever been to Europe and eaten in a local cafe or restaurant you know that the wines are often cheap, locally produced and unexpectedly delicious. Usually made in such small amounts that the wines are rarely seen outside their local region. Sirio Montepulciano is a perfect example of this type of wine that we're lucky enough to have Manuel of Sunrise Wines bringing to North Carolina. Crafted by the San Lorenzo family utilizing classic techniques, native yeasts and bottled unoaked to emphasize the true nature of the grape and region. This wine is a real crowd-pleaser showing aromas and flavors of fresh black fruit and distinct savory herbs and spices will pair well with our favorite pizza or red sauce pasta.

Chateau Marsau Cotes de Francs Bordeaux (France) - Chateau Marsau is a 24-acre jewel that has been called by Robert Parker “The Petrus of the Cotes de Francs” due to its exceptional terroir. Just a few kilometres east of Saint Emilion, in the historical village of Francs, the Chateau Marsau vines command one of the highest reaches of the Côtes de Bordeaux-Francs appellation. Here, in this prized location covering just a few hectares, on gentle, southfacing slopes, the Marsau vines penetrate deep into the red and grey clay soils, guaranteeing a constant supply of water to the vineyard.
"There’s a very bright and ripe array of dark berries and plums with an earthy edge, as well as nuances of sweetly fragrant black truffle. The palate has a very supple and fluid core of ripe dark plums with a very sleek, polished and compressed bed of tannins. Great depth and drive here through the finish. Mouthwatering, pure Merlot. Try from 2023. - 94pts James Suckling"

Seppeltsfield Barossa Shiraz (Australia) - This is a soul-warming, hug-in-a-glass Shiraz from one of Australia's most historic estates. It busts out peppery spice and herbs atop plump plum and dark-berry fruit with a dusty terra cotta bass note. The palate is equally fruit-and-spice driven, rich and silky in texture, but tightened up with savory, sinewy tannins. An unabashedly sun-drenched Shiraz, but one that is ultra approachable in spite of itself. - 93pts  Wine Enthusiast

Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee Red (Sonoma) - A perennial favorite, the 2021 iteration of Gundlach's Mountain Cuvee Red is another winner.  A Bordeaux-obsessed blend featuring layer upon layer of ripe fruit - think boysenberry, cranberry and pomegranate - followed by a hint of toasty oak. Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvée is a medium-bodied, red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot packed with juicy red fruit, black currants and and a dark chocolate finish complimented by silky tannins, with hints of oak and cedar. And an elegant structure with a finish that’s a real crowd-pleaser. 

Bindi Sergardi "Achille" Toscana Rosso (Italy) - For 23 generations the Bindi Sergardi lands have never ceased to produce typical Sienese agricultural products: wine, olive oil, rotating crops, farm animals. The current owner, Nicolò Casini, grandson of Elisabetta Bindi Sergardi and man of his times, has chosen to emphasize the grapevine and olive tree cultivation to promote the farms' dedication to agricultural and oenological excellence.  A classic Sangiovese it has an intense ruby red color with an equally intense bouquet. Achille has accents of mature red fruit, cherries and blackberries and is round, juicy and soft in the mouth which make is so delicious and easy to drink.

Airfield Estates Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington) - Aromas consisting of black cherry, cassis, and black currant are interwoven with complex layers of sandalwood and seared leather. The palate is robust, yet remarkably elegant with secondary flavors of salted toffee, blackberry, cocoa powder and sweet pipe tobacco. Finishing off with remarkably smooth and structured tannins, the balanced acidity accentuates the dark berry with jam like flavors, leaving a finish that lingers on the palate for an incredible length. The palate shows its restrained tannin structure that bursts with secondary flavors of plum, dark espresso, and a hint of sweet pipe tobacco with a velvet-like structure accentuating the French oak notes that linger on the palate.
